In Western astrology, Virgo is considered to be a “feminine”, negative and introvert sign, along with the other five even-numbered signs of the Zodiac: Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces.

Virgo is the second largest constellation in the night sky and largest of the 12 Zodiac constellations. It is easily located and visible to the naked eye, found between Libra and Leo. Some believe that Virgo holds the scales of Libra.

The Story of Virgo the Maiden

The Constellation of Virgo

The exact origin of Virgo is greatly debated among astrological scholars. There are many different figures that The Maiden (or Virgin) is said to represent.

The most common story behind the constellation of Virgo originates with Astraeia, the goddess of Justice. She was born a mortal and ruled on the Earth, but when man no longer valued justice, she flew to the heavens where she remains today as Virgo.

The constellation of Libra, depicting the scales of Justice, is found right beside the constellation of Virgo. Some say The Maiden is literally holding the scales of Justice for eternity in the stars.


The Ruling Planet of Virgo

Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury, which is known for cleverness, intelligence and awakening.

In mythology, Mercury was the Messenger God. The planet was named after this God because of the speed with which it moves across the sky.

A loyal perfectionist!

Virgo man may not appear to be romantic on the surface, but he will offer his partner the deepest and most sincere loyalty – they are also capable of great passion.

As with Virgo Mums, Virgo Dad has to remember that education and intellect is not everything in their kids, so he can find being a good Dad very hard. He needs to balance education with play!

However both his children and his partner also have to remember that his high expectations are just because he cares so much!

Virgo Woman

Virgo Ladies are cool on the outside, emotional on the inside!

Virgo girls are pretty in a very natural looking way. One of my daughters is a Virgo and she is typical of the sign. She may wear makeup but you would have to look hard to spot it.

It’s the same with her clothes. She rarely dresses to impress but she still impresses anyway!

Virgo women are usually very unaware of their pretty looks and it is rare for them to spot the attention they attract.

In love the Virgoan woman is very undemonstrative, while she takes a step back and tries to work out what makes her partner “tick”. It will also be extremely important to find a partner who treats her as an equal, both intellectually and on the home front.
